What to Expect
After meeting your private guide in central Oxford, explain any particular interests you may have. Possible tour focuses include the worlds of Harry Potter or Lewis Carroll, or you can learn all about the history of Oxford. Your guide will discuss your options and arrange the best itinerary for the tour time and day of the week. Then stroll Oxford’s streets as your guide illuminates the city, answering any questions you have. You might choose to visit the Bodleian Library, first opened in 1602, Sir Christopher Wren’s Sheldonian Theatre, or the Hertford Bridge, known as the “Bridge of Sighs.” Once your tour ends, your guide will bid you farewell in the city center.
